Teacher finds new technique to publish creative works of students at zero cost
Palakkad: With a new method found by a teacher here, students can now make their creative works into e-books. Chalissery native Thomson Kumaranellur, a maths teacher at GHS School in Anakkara, found out the new method using Google Form software.
Currently, Google Form is used for conducting exams, surveys and evaluation. An additional software called Autocrat is installed to make the e-books. In this method, books of any size can be created within a short period of time. With the help of this software, 24 children of class 9 in Anakkara school contributed to an e-book which was issued as part of Gandhi Jayanti.
Thomson is one of the 12 members of Learning Teachers Kerala who trained about 4000 teachers via online. Three years ago, Thomson had made maths lessons hi-tech for his students. The project was approved by the SCERT and is currently being used all over the state for teaching during the COVID times.
Google Form e-version is a technology to make the creative works by students into book form. Every student can write their stories, poems and articles by opening the Google Form link sent by teachers.
After this, the teacher converts every page into Autocrat version. This can be stored as PDF files after editing. The e-books made in this method can be sent to others via mobile phones. If necessary, they can also print the pages and make it a hard copy.
